And then Schaub did the one thing he wanted to avoid — he let Cincinnati’s defense get its hands on the ball. Hall anticipated Schaub’s throw, stepped in front and returned it untouched, high-stepping the last few yards, for the defense’s fourth touchdown in the last four games.
Hall also ran back an interception 17 yards for the only Bengals touchdown in a 13-10 win over Pittsburgh that clinched a playoff spot. It was the first interception return for a touchdown against the Texans this season.
Like the Texans, the Bengals ended the season by hitting a wall on offense — one touchdown in the last two games. The offensive woes continued on Saturday when the Bengals failed to score a touchdown on offense again.
NOTES: Houston’s 420 yards were the most given up by the Bengals in their last 10 games. … Houston receiver Andre Johnson had four receptions for 62 yards to extend his streak of consecutive games with a reception to 99. … Texans' LB Cameron Collins made his NFL debut on Saturday after being signed from the practice squad a day earlier. … R&B star Brian McKnight sang the national anthem.
